Bill and Melinda Gates divorce after 27 years – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

The billionaire philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates have announced their divorce after 27 years of marriage, saying “we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple”.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” the pair tweeted.

They first met in the 1980s when Melinda joined Bill’s Microsoft firm.

The couple jointly run the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation which has spent billions fighting causes such as infectious diseases and encouraging vaccinations in children.

Guys just because they are divorcing does not mean something horrendous has happened nor will happen. Fact is 27 years of marriage is when most marriages have fallen apart and couples are miserable and toxic to each other but stay together bc of the stigma about divorce and the long years they have spent with each other make it hard to split and imagine something better alone. Those two are smart and most likely have had an understanding for years now. Divorces around their age usually mean they have really tried everything and want to find happiness since them being a couple does not make them happy anymore. They are still otp and fine with each other considering they will be working together. Hope they find happiness. Congrats on their divorce

Kids are on their own, time to try out a new model. I think they joined with Buffet to not leave most or their their money to their kids but to I guess their foundation, I don't think money is an issue since they probably live on less than the dividends of their fortune.

John Maximilian May 4, 2021 - 8:11 PM

Well, if Bill and Melinda, with all their good deeds and wealth and philanthropy are filing for divorce at such ages,
Then I guess marriage doesn't mean anything in the West anymore
I really hope I'm wrong

What next phase of their lives, they're 70

Please call for the cancellation of the Tokyo Olympics.

The reasons are as follows:
·Vaccination is not progressing in Japan
·Olympic Games may further spread infection
·The number of infected people in Japan is unreliable.

Especially the third one.
If you look at the statistics, the number of infected people in Japan is low.
But this data is not reliable.

The number of tests for COVID-19 in Japan is extremely small.
The Japanese government has intentionally reduced the number of tests and announced a small number of infected people.

I think it's the worst thing to do to deceive the world.

Don't you think it's against the principles of the Olympics to hold the Olympics in a country with such anxiety?

I think that the Olympics should be held in an area where the environment in which everyone in the world can feel secure is established.
